Music Passport - Supporting Transition to Secondary School
Unfortunately, lots of children stop their instrumental or vocal lessons when they move from primary to secondary school. There are many different reasons that this happens, but one is that the new school isn't aware that the child has been learning and isn't encouraged to continue.
To help improve communication about a child's musical learning, we have created a simple 'Music Passport' which primary schools and parents can print off and complete for the child to take to their new school in September
The Cornwall Music Education Hub is committed to ensuring wider access to music for all children and young people. In order to do this, the Hub is working with schools and Hub Registered Providers to help provide free or subsidised instrumental/vocal tuition for school-age children.
If the child meets one of the following criteria and are receiving lessons from a Hub Registered Provider they will be entitled to a 100% subsidy up to £5.00 per lesson:
- Currently eligible for Free School Meals (not including FSM universal entitlement for Infants School pupils)
- Currently in Care
- One or more parents/carers in the household are currently serving in the British armed forces
If the child meets the following criteria and is receiving lessons from a Hub Registered Provider they will be entitled 50% subsidy up to £2.50 per lesson:
- Parent/carer in the child’s household or child learning is in receipt of Disability Living Allowance (Personal Independence Payment)
